And she shrieked and ran away.


Hahaha. Woooooooooow. Sometimes I dream that I'm Superman. Those ones are my favorite cause I just fly everywhere.

I had a dream last night that I was baking 3 different kinds of cookies in one bowl, and had to figure out how to mix ingredients without having the 3 kinds of cookies merge together. also, I was at the beach.

good luck/have fun. was this an organized event or did you set it up? i'll be in the city for the cardozo event on the 18th and want to visit fordham that friday..

edit: according to the tour schedule, there are none that week. I guess its spring break? What's a girl to do??

edit #2: OR all of those tours are already filled. I'm coming in from out of town. Think they'll accomodate me?

If the school is open, you can always do a self-guided tour and still meet with someone from admissions. Just send the office an email and ask to set something up.

Thanks Hannah. That's enormously helpful!

Hopefully I'll hear a decision from them this week. I'm complete 12/9 like Kim.

helpful to me too, thanks.

As soon as I found out if Cardozo will reimburse my flight (I like 354 miles away, the airport is 341) I'll buy a ticket and see about working the Fordham visit out... I'd like to have adequate time to at least tour... can get a flight getting into jfk at 7:30am and out at 1040pm...

Marry me. :mrgreen: I also love the clarification, because there's things that could have been suggested...ya know...OFF the record.


Ha, well to be honest, I would have first suggested something like a street pharmacist, but that's illegal, and who wants a record on their way to law school? Strippers make serious bank, it's really not a bad idea. Except for goosey because she wears the hijab, plus I'm a Catholic and I'm pretty sure it'd be frowned upon.

Wow, I really hope no admissions people read this thread...

Doubtful. I think they're LOVING this. They're probably like "Haha, this girl Kim is waiting around like the ugly girl on prom night!"

I think private tutor or some kind is where its at. You can capitalize on your smarts and status as a law student and not have to compete with all the struggling actors/actresses and artsy types working in food service and whatnot. Plus Manhattan has a HUGE market of desperate parents trying to assemble an army of tutors, therapists, and other professionals to get their kids into the best schools. There was just an article in the times style section about how having an occupational therapist for your kid is the hot new thing on the upper east side...

So I emailed again today and I received a response within 10 minutes.

Hi Kimberly,
I apologies for the delayed response but I was trying to locate your file with the entire Committee. I hope to have a decision for you within the next day or so :-).


God willing! She was very nice when I spoke to her, so I'm hoping she's right!

I don't know - can't decide until I see scholarship offers... then I'll have to think about it. Going to be hard, I think. Undergrad was easy - I got the best deal at the best school.

Do you think they'd give $$$ to boost their PT numbers?

Or do you think they will assume someone with a 172 is applying PT because she has to and therefore they have no incentive to give her money?
